Lee Pedersen: Thorp a good leader

Thorp a good leader

UNC-CH and the state of North Carolina could not have had a more creative, loyal and energetic leader than Holden Thorp. He has continually maintained positivity in the face of media scrutiny, some fair, some unfair, and done the tough job required given the sometimes impossible hand that fate dealt him.

It is my expectation that like Churchill, Eisenhower and Augustus, who were long-lasting achievers, we will see his future accomplishments and be proud with, and for, him.
